for distance students
If you are enrolled in a distance course at Malmö University, you are welcome to contact the library if you want to borrow books or search for information. If you live outside Malmö, we can deliver books to your home address. You can also make an appointment for a search consultation and get help via video conference (Zoom).
Get a library card/Multicard
To be able to borrow and request books, you need a Multicard. You order your Multicard from the link below and it will be sent to your home address.
If for some reason you do not want to order a Multicard, it is also possible to get a library card at one of our libraries.
If you live outside Malmö we send the books you want to borrow to your home address. The loan period is normally three weeks, but when we send you the books you get a four-week loan period to compensate for the shipping.
Please observe that we don´t send books to non-swedish delivery addresses.
Start by searching for the book in Libsearch
If the book is checked out
Make a request by clicking on “Place a hold”. Log in with your first name and library card number. It does not matter which library you choose as a pickup location. If you are registered as a distance student at Malmö University, the book will be automatically delivered to you when it is returned to the library.
At “My loans” you can view your reservations and delete them if you no longer need them.
If the book is available
Fill in your details in this form to place an order
If you are in Malmö you can return your library books to any of our three libraries, during the opening hours. During some hours you need a Multicard and pin-code to access the libraries.
Return books by mail
You can also return your library loans by mail. You pay postage yourself. You remain responsible for your loans until they reach the library.
Please note: Keep in mind that if your package weighs more than 2 kg, you need to mail it to our delivery address instead of our postal address. Also, remember to mail the books a few days before the return date as they are registered as returned only when they arrive at the library.
If you need more help or if there is a book or article you cannot get hold of, we will be happy to help.
